Great files at a good price. I've used them several times and they have worked perfectly. They come in a nice upright clear plastic case for easy storage.
This price is very competitive with other companies and all these files are straigh and within .001"-.002" of the measurements labeled. They cut very smoothly and quickly.and it has Lamaist any size gauge you would need other than for a bass.
A decent set of files but the reason i only give them 4 stars is because the .010 file is bowed. I sort of expected that such a thin file would not be perfectly straight but the amount of bow is at least 1/4". Even if it were not so bowed it is thin and flexible. I will make something to hold it straight when using to cut a slot.
Covers most gauges of strings in one set of files. for a low price.
Absolutely top drawer product. Easy to work with to properly Prepare guitar nut. 10 file sizes fit the needs of electric and acoustic guitar techs. Size is just right for the job. First nut I worked on was Alvarez 12 string - really made the job go as quickly and guitar sounded marvelous when completed. You need this set!
Had some files I got on eBay that lasted only a short time, very disappointed. Bought these to replace them and have been very pleased. i use them mostly on bone nuts. Well mark on what size width each file is. Cuts clean slots easily and without problem. Product size is just right for handling while slotting away. A very good 4 stars. Use a file brush to clean them off and expect them to last for long time. Well packaged for (prompt) shipping and storage. Well pleased with Philadelphia Luthiers, will happily purchase from them again.
A set of very high quality nut files, each one clearly marked with the width. So much better than the cheap tapered ones you see for sale. These are individually wrapped and come in a clear plastic tube with a neat screw top marked with the HOSCO logo. This was my first purchase from Philadelphia Luthier and I was most impressed all the way from checkout, to the string of emails telling me where in the mail chain my item was, to receiving them in the UK just a few days later. Highly recommended product and supplier, thanks Guys!
This set of nut files are a great investment. They are durable and cut fast. You'll save more money here than those from Stewmac files.
